ABA TECHSHOW draws a crowd of legal professionals from different cities, states, and countries every year. Extensive travel arrangements are made, buckets of regular coffee are consumed and note-taking Apps are downloaded in preparation to hear the best speakers in legal technology. We hear from attendees; “it’s all about the great speakers”, or “the buzzing EXPO Hall is why I attend”. We love hearing both. This year we heard something different from attendees. “It’s all about the people.” – Tweeted using the #ABATECHSHOW hashtag after the Conference ended.
The #ABATECHSHOW trend is still in full swing. Speakers, exhibitors, attendees, and people not in attendance are still joining in the discussion. It has become a communal hot spot to share insight and learn something new in legal technology. Mac lawyers, Brett Burney (@MacsInLaw) and Ben Stevens (@TheMacLawyer) played an active role tweeting during the Conference and continue to share useful Mac-related technology tools. Exhibitors were announcing their new products and services at the Conference and are still using the #ABATECHSHOW trend to reach their target audience. Attendees from the 60 Sites in 60 Minutes session are still tweeting about the useful and funny sites they learned about. And just last Friday; #ABATECHSHOW was the subject of discussion during #LegalChat, a lively discussion on Twitter that occurs every Friday at 11:00 a.m. ET.
If you had the opportunity to follow the #ABATECHSHOW trend during the Conference, you were surely going to learn something new and gain a few more followers. If you only watched the trend, you probably had a few laughs from attendees quoting Ben Stein’s Keynote. If you missed it completely, ABA TECHSHOW attendee and LPM Section member, Andrea Cannavina (@LegalTypist), prepared the #ABATECHSHOW tweets from before and during the Conference:
